High End build HELP!!! for Heavy Photoshop/multimidia and gaming!

Please HELP me! I need to build a high end PC for heavy Photoshop/ Corel Painter work as well as hardcore gaming.
My budget is $3500us. I want a rig that will last a long while.

The only thing I ask is that you please build using the Corsair 800 D case.

Budget Range: $3500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: heavy Photoshop/ Corel Painter work as well as hardcore gaming

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Parts Preferences: Nvidia for graphics cards

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: Yes possibly 3 way SLI

Monitor Resolution: 21 inch Cintiq, gaming on 47inch Sony Bravia 1080p HDTV.

Additional Comments: I would like a PC that will Max out games for the next 3-4 years.

    And I would recommend the i7 2600k, and not the Bulldozer because we really don't know if the Bulldozer will be any good

    Edit: I would also spend less on the case and more for the components...thats me though
